Obamas and the Queen
Visiting the United Kingdom for the first time as president, Barack Obama noted that “[t]here’s one last thing I should mention I love about Great Britain and that is the Queen. I’m very much looking forward to meeting her.” The Obamas subsequently enjoyed a cordial meeting with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. If Mrs. Obama displayed more physical familiarity than customary, Her Majesty did not seem to mind.
